About Philip Sparks

My name is Philip and my wife Sue and I are both retired and live in Devon. We went on holiday to Olu Deniz 9 years ago and immediately fell in love with the area. One year later we purchased a plot of land in Faralya and had Orchard Villa built.

We both enjoy gardening, hence the 1 acre plot and orchard, as it is great to pick and eat your own fruit, depending on the time of the year. We also love eating out and in the last few years a few really good restaurants have been opened in the village.

When we first had the villa built we only rented it to friends and family but we felt that we would like to share the experience with other like minded people who love tranquility but are still near enough to the towns and beaches and all the amenities required. The villa is in a good position to do some sightseeing. From here you can get to Fethiye, Saklikent Gorge, Dalyan. Kaya and so many other places of interest. We are slowly working our way through them. Our latest excursion being Pamukkale which is amazing.

Philip Sparks purchased this villa in 2007

Why Philip Sparks chose Turkey

Faralya is a traditional Turkish village in a quite rural location overlooking Fethiye Bay with a glorious back drop of the mountains.

It is a very peaceful and tranquil place with a few local restaurants which provide excellent food and Turkish hospitality. Our favourite being The Olive Garden in Kabak where we have been going for over 8 years now. The owner Fatih has now become a good friend and all our guests love eating there as the views are amazing.

The village has a taxi rank and a regular bus service which cost a few Lira and run regularly between Kabac, Faralya village, Olu Deniz, Hisaronu and Fethiye town which is some 40 minutes drive but worth a visit as it has many restaurants, shops and banks.

In the last few years we have planted numerous fruit trees (58 to be precise) including Banana, Fig, Mandarin, Oranges, Lime, Lemon, Apple, Grapefruit etc.

The weather is fantastic.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Sue and Phil ensured we felt welcome at their villa and provided us with much local information and even booked a boat trip for us in Fethiye. The villa was even nicer than we were expecting from the photos. The sunsets are truly amazing. This is perfect if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle yet beautiful sea views and walking distance to many local restaurants and the restaurant owner may even drive you home at the end of your evening. We were driven home twice from Zakros Hotel which we loved. We stayed locally most of the time wanting to make the most of the beautiful villa, the pool and the many fruit trees in the garden which Sue and Phil were happy for us to enjoy. Thank you.

Lovely villa in a peaceful setting with great view

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely, spacious villa with all the conveniences of home. Immaculately presented and beautifully furnished- very well cared for inside and out. The outside area is great for relaxing round the pool, but also offers natural beauty with sea views and red squirrels playing in the garden. The local information in the villa directed us to lovely beaches nearby, and one was even within walking distance through scenic woods . Lots to do in local towns, lovely restaurants (like the Olive Garden) or just enjoy the barbeque and seating area.

The owners could not have been more helpful and we will definitely go again in future.

I would recommend this villa to anyone

This is a perfect Villa for a relaxed holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous two-week stay at Orchard Villa. The setting is idyllic and very peaceful, and the Villa is very well equipped, with four good bedrooms (all en suite). Phil and Sue, the owners, arranged our car hire and boat trip for us and made us all feel very special. Highly recommended.

Coast/Beach:

The villa is approximately 20 minutes drive to the large and lively beach resort of Olu Deniz, and the more relaxing World famous Blue Lagoon. Here you can indulge in many types of water sports, paragliding or have lunch in one of the many beach front restaurants and do a spot of shopping.

Nearer home, a 20 minute walk will take you to the local beach or a 5 minute drive to Kabak beach.

The villa is located near the famous Lycian Way which runs from Fethiye to Antalya which is ideal for those wishing to have a scenic walk/hike.

Travel:

Dalaman Airport is the nearest to the villa being some 1hr 45 minutes drive. The journey will take you through breathtaking scenery from Olu Deniz to Faralya passing Butterfly Valley on the way. A car/jeep is essential for your stay at the villa.

Distances:

Whilst the village can cater for the basics, a trip to either Olu Deniz (20 mins) or Fethiye (35 mins) for your main shop is essential.

Further Details:

Turkey is rich in culture and opportunities to experience something new and exciting.

A trip to Fethiye is strongly recommended. Tuesday is Market Day being the best market for vegetables, spices, cheeses, clothing etc.

There are many stunning beaches on the Fethiye Peninsula and Fethiye itself is a fabulous market town with a beautiful harbour, where you can admire the boats and relax with a Turkish coffee.
